I grew up on an eastern North Carolina farm, where I developed the ability to draw and a passion for pictures. While earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Painting at East Carolina University, I gained skills, knowledge, and a broad interest in the Arts. While living in Atlanta, Georgia, I showed my work at the Ariel Gallery and participated in the Annual Dogwood Festival Art Show.
Today, living in New Bern, NC, I continue making pictures in acrylic, watercolor, charcoal, graphite, and oil pastels. I am a painter. A painting or drawing is not a static thing. It grows and changes from conception to completion. Seeing a picture evolve is thrilling.
